Here are some resources that you might find useful on your writing therapy journey. Some of these relate specifically to topics such as journaling or expressive writing, whereas others are focused on the kind of topics that might have brought you here such as health, anxiety, chronic pain, or simply a love of writing.

We will add to these regular so do make sure to keep checking back, and if you know of any resources which you feel might be of benefit to Writing Therapy users please do let us know.


For many years the The International Association for Journal Writing, or IAJW for short, has provided a range of educational resources relating to journaling and journal-style writing. The organization offers a variety of courses covering everything from writing for health and wellbeing, through to self-discovery and self-development. In addition, it provides regular opportunities to meet up with fellow journalers and participate in virtual write-ins, and there are regular interviews with a wide variety of experts in the field. Some of these resources are available to everyone, and others are exclusively available to IAJW members.
